Olives are now bottled


These are the green olives from our olive harvest.  They had to be kept soaking for a few more days than the black olives in order to eliminate the bitterness.

Both lots of olives are now bottled and we do indeed have a great crop this year.

I don’t think we will need to buy any olives this year.

I have given the tree a severe prune so it will be interesting to see what our crop is like next year.

    That would be so neat, to be able to grow olives! The jars of them are so pretty.

      I get pleasure from being able to preserve what we grow.

        I do too. Then it’s so nice to get things out in the cold of the winter and know it grew right out there >>>>.
